Boy, I bet white A-murder-ca is glad that you Mexicans ain't like us brothers. You see what we did after that jury out in California said not guilty and set Rodney King's assailants free. Yep, we pretty much burned down South Central, LosAngeles.
Fast forward seventeen years to a different place. This time it's the Schuylkill County region here in Pistolvania. A state that can be just as racist and backwards as the ones supposedly down in Dixie. Anyway, seems an all white jury acquitted a fine All American boy for getting the better of some immigrant in a little fist fight. --So the Mexican wasn't tough enough, hey, it's not our fault that he grew up soft in Mexico-- and now all these civil rights race pimps are up in arms. They even want more hate crime laws for crying out loud. Geez!
Get over yourselves people, shit happens. Oh come on field, stop being sarcastic. Why do we need hate laws, aren't the republicans right? I mean if someone kills someone they are charged with murder and could face the death penalty. To paraphrase George Bush: it doesn't get anymore severe than death. What good would a hate crime do? Well, for starters, it might have prevented him from killing that Gay, or Mexican, or black person, in the first place. Just a thought. Not so field, the republicans are right, that Matthew Shepperd guy wasn't targeted because he was gay, he was targeted because he had money and his killer was high. Yeah, OK, and I love Lark Voorhies for her acting skills. Someone should tell Virginia Foxx (R-NC) and the rest of the clowns in the hate party, that it might not be so cool to speculate about the motives behind the death of a young man who was brutally murdered, and belittle his memory to his family and friends who are still here to hear her hateful words. And I am guessing that poor Luis Ramirez wasn't targeted for his money. In fact, if you read about the case you will find that he was baited into a fight with "racial epithets". Imagine that? "Racial epithets."
The following comes from a fine Christian website. (Man I love those Christians)
"No one is in favor of injustice, much less hate, nor is any one is in favor of crime. But this is not really about justice. Honest homosexuals admit that these laws are not needed for law enforcement purposes. This is not like during the time when blacks were being murdered and denied justice by corrupt courts so that the Federal government had to intervene. There is no similar pattern of injustice or lack of enforcement towards victims who are homosexual. The attempt to include sexual orientation into law is only one more step in the process to normalize homosexual behavior. This is part of an incremental strategy to force acceptance of homosexuality into all parts of the culture under the color of law and to punish those who oppose it.
Hate crimes enhancements turns justice on its head and creates unequal justice under law. Rather than correcting an inequity, like it originally did for blacks, now it creates injustice. Hates crimes creates a class of criminals who are “more guilty,” not because of what they did, but because of what they might have been thinking. It also creates unequal justice for different classes of victims, some who are considered “more worthy” of greater legal protection than others. Thomas Jefferson said, “the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions…” The government is not competent to read a person's mind, much less criminalize his opinions."
And then there is this from a wingnut website I linked earlier:
"One of the most insidious and almost hidden dangers of the bill is that it could be used to halt the free speech of Catholic and protestant ministers alike as it pertains to the biblical teachings of homosexuality.The bible is clear that homosexuality is and always was an abomination in God's eyes. An abomination is a sin that makes God sick to disgust. While this is true the bible does not allow any believer to harm or injure a gay person in any way, not even with words. Not even these biblical protections are good enough for most gays.."
Sorry, can't blame the Gays for not trusting those "biblical protections". I mean if they make god "sick" and "disgusted" isn't it pretty much a wrap? I am just saying.
Man I sure am glad that god loves us black folks again. I bet the people up in Schuylkill County are too.
